    I am sorry that you have lost your mother but we both know where she is. I wish that I could have met her and your dad while I was there for the reunion. God bless you in your hour of loss.

    So sorry to hear about your mother. What a wonderful person she was. She was always happy and smiling. You are a lot like her. She and your dad were kind to my grandmother who lived across the street. (Doug Peterson lives just down the highway from Watervliet…about 15 minutes.) You are in my thoughts and prayers.
